ELIZABETH MARTINA BISHOP
Director Vibhas Kendzia
Interviewer Luke Danial Holland
Born a poet! Elizabeth Martina Bishop captures the essence of her own fascinating and poetic life in this captivating film interview and reflection. In her own intriguing words and mesmerizing voice, she reveals the heartaches and darkness of an anything-but-normal childhood. But at the same time describes an almost enchanting, fairytale journey of a born-to-be, learned, renowned poet and author.
She describes the many challenges, including difficulty reading and writing as a child, often discouraged and forbidden by parental figures to write at all, including the betrayal by other important adult figures. None of which dampened her spirit or passion to write; she persisted. And this film deftly portrays her persistence and immersion in her writing, education and her career. She embodies the vivacity of a talented, committed professional willing to inspire and educate other writers along the way.
The content of the film reinforces that being a poet is not just an art, but a calling and lifestyle. As a charming, prolific writer and author of poetry and other genres, she reflects the very soul of cultures where she has visited, studied, taught and lived, embracing their people, and their stories. Most of which has become the very rhythm and source of not only her poetry, but also the connection to her relationship and recognition of the rhythm of the earth itself.
